GEO. Images only
(includes video clips)
The links in this section are to archives where only images (including video) are
stored, or to web pages with minimal text. Sources range from large databases such as
those operated by NASA, to smaller image resource collections of university departments or
individuals. They include satellite images of the Earth and planets, as well as
photographs taken from the ground. Maps are included in these pages. You also have the
option of jumping to image search at any time.

NASA Images- photographs covering a very wide range of subjects including the planets.
- 523.3 The Moon
NSSDC Photogallery - large clear, detailed images. Relatively fast loading. Just what you need (see also under other planets)
- 523.4 Planets
CEPS Planetary Image Facility
NASA Planetary Photojournal . Collection of images from the main programmes, selectable by planet. Includes the current month┤s latest images. Around 500 images (June 1997) and growing.
NSSDC Photogallery - large clear, detailed images. Relatively fast loading. Just what you need. Easy to find under planet + object name. (see also under moon)
Planetary image finders (Bob Kanefsky/Responsible NASA official: Sonie Lau ) - a collection of links to mainly image-based web sites, all of which provide high resolution images. Sometimes unprocessed however, or in formats which you may need to have software for.
Views of the solar system (Calvin J Hamilton). This web site contains 950 high quality views of all the main geological features of the planets and smaller bodies of the solar system which have been photographed. There are also accompanying explanations and statistics, but the site is included in this application because selection of images-only is very easy if required.
- 523.41 Mercury
Views of the solar system - Mercury (Calvin J Hamilton) - see description in 523.4
Magellan GIF images. (NASA Planetary Data System) - topography, gravity and other geophysical images from the Magellan programme.
Magellan Image Products (Planetary Data System at MIT) - large database with images of surface features in detail. Several "volumes" of data available. Composite image collections can be browsed and individual features selected by clicking. A very useful feature is that the position of the images on the planet is given and the nearset large feature. Good help provided.
Views of the solar system - Venus (Calvin J Hamilton) - see description in 523.4
Mars Global Surveyor (JPL/NASA) - images pages. Tends to concentrate on the equipment but images from the planet may start to appear soon (11 sept ┤97)
NASA Photojournal (Mars) (NASA/JPL) - Images arranged according to mission (Viking, Surveyor, Pathfinder etc.). Pop-up menu makes for easy use.
Views of the solar system - Mars (Calvin J Hamilton) - see description in 523.4
- 523.44Asteroids (Planetoids)
Views of the solar system - Asteroids (Calvin J Hamilton) - see description in 523.4
Computer-generated Galileo approach images of Jupiter . 120 images in small and large format. Possibly an easy way of finding the right view of the planet.
